Special Gifts for Mother's Day

The Millicans

Mother’s Day is just around the corner, and the perfect time to let our moms know just how much they mean to us. Though we may be celebrating a little different this year, it doesn’t mean we don’t appreciate them as much as we ever have. In fact, this year may have brought that appreciation into real focus. 

Special Gifts for Mother's Day

For some of us, May will mean we are entering the second month of “at-home learning.” This has brought about many unexpected changes and new ways of doing things, but let us be reminded that some things stay the same. Like the comfort of your mom’s reassurance, her timely advice, and the supportive encouragement from her especially during uncertain times. I hope this new time we find ourselves in has given you time to sit and enjoy the ones you love, especially Mom. This time can give us a chance to reconnect and feel comforted. Let us use this time to make the most of #alonetogether and show our moms the love and appreciation they deserve.

Gifts Ideas for Mom

Here are some special gifts to consider for Mother's Day, to communicate your love and appreciation this year.

  1. Breakfast in bed is always a good option. I remember doing this for my mom when I was growing up. It was an annual tradition that my dad did with me and my siblings. I have such fond memories of waking up early and laughing and trying to whisper as we were preparing her breakfast meal. It is a great way to pamper mom and really make her feel loved. It may mean you have to get up a little early, but we have some recipes that will make it easy, yet delicious.

    Pecan Pie Baked Oatmeal

    Now, I know you may not live with your mom, but how about hand delivery? A special breakfast delivered right to her door from her most special people. That is pretty big.  And, even if you don’t live in the same area as your mom, don’t fret, you can always call in a special delivery for that one-of-kind surprise.
  2. Homemade cards mean the most. Since we have more time on our hands these days, why not make a special handmade card for mom. Take the time to draw or paint some of her favorite things, write a poem, or share a few lines of your favorite memory of her. These are the things that will stay with her and last a lifetime.
  3. Unsolicited chores around the house – oops, did this slip out? Maybe this is just wishful thinking for the loved ones around my house, but somehow, I think it would be appreciated at your place too. This may not fit everyone’s situation because of where you live, but who doesn’t love the feeling of getting things done? Could you be that helpful person for your mom? To make sure we practice safe social distancing be sure you keep it to outside chores such as clearing out the garage, weeding a flowerbed, or trimming hedges and bushes? I feel these would all be very much appreciated and great ways to give back to your mom in the same way she gave to you.
  4. Send chocolate and pecans delivered right to her front door. Whether you have a chocolate lover or baker in your family, you are sure to find something that pleases. Try some of these top sellers or put together your own hand-picked gifts specific to your mom.

We hope you and your family are happy and healthy. We know this time will come to an end and we will see the other side of this global pandemic. May we all make the most of this time by enjoying the special people in our lives.

If you have gotten creative with ways to celebrate your mom, let us know about it. Pandemic or not, we know there are some things that will never change - like the love of our moms!
